For me, yes. I have found this step-by-step guide good to start with:

From a quick glance I'd say that this is a better start for me too. At
least I find my way through the code.

If you will come (or have come) up with a nice style, it could be
added to the module for others.

That would be really nice.

My design requirements are very simple but very different to the styles
I saw so far.

The only effect, I use, are bullet lists that appear step by step.

Re: [NTG-context] Recommendations on presentations

2016-10-05 Thread Otared Kavian
Hi,

I use also MacOS and all my presentations are made with ConTeXt. The easiest 
thing to do is to take examples from simpleslides, or from the examples by Hans 
in the folder

tex/texmf-context/tex/context/modules/common

of the standalone tree, and then adapt them to your needs and your taste.

Best regards: OK

[NTG-context] Recommendations on presentations

2016-10-04 Thread Jan U. Hasecke
Hi all,

Keynote is the only software that ties me to MacOS X. I would like to
copy some of its presentations styles to ConTeXt (MKIV).

What is the best way to do this?

I read about simpleslides and looked into the code but I am unsure
whether I start from a simpleslides example.

Is it better to simply define the layout from scratch?
